Verifone VX600 Bluetooth Manual

STS’ G8:Enterprise and G8:Client applications are designed to allow merchants to accept credit and debit card payments in a variety of ways – EMV (Chip-and-PIN), magnetic stripe, keyed entry and contactless – hiding the complexity of the process from the POS system, and providing merchants with a choice of card readers and payment system providers.

Here, we describe your options when supporting contactless card payments.

G8 leverages STS’ Touchlink contactless-payments product to perform contactless transactions. Touchlink is the counterpart to STS’ Emvelink EMV payments system. Unlike Emvelink, which has its own EMV Kernel, Touchlink uses the on-board contactless kernels of the devices it supports; this is mainly to support the extremely rapid transaction processing time requirements. Touchlink provides an abstraction layer that hides the differences between the various card reader models.

G8 hides the details of accepting card payments behind its “take a payment from any card” interface. The transaction flow, including double-taps for on-device cardholder verification and fall-forward, is managed entirely by G8. Optional attendant instructions are sent to the POS as required.

G8 supports high-value contactless and on-device cardholder verification, so mobile-phone payment systems such as Apple Pay and Android Pay are supported as with any other modern contactless terminal that is compliant with current scheme rules.

G8’s support of Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) and Secure Reading and Exchange of Data (SRED) always includes contactless as well as EMV (Chip-and-PIN) and magnetic stripe.

Touchlink, and consequently G8, supports contactless on Ingenico devices running the RAM application, and Verifone devices running the VIPA (‘7816’) application. Touchlink will be extended to support other card readers in future.

Ingenico RAM

G8 supports contactless transactions on Ingenico devices running the RAM application. This includes most Telium 2 devices: including the iPP350 wired terminal; the iWL250 wireless/Bluetooth terminal; the iSMP and iCMP handheld devices; and the iUN/iUC unattended terminals.

As of RAM version 0970, G8 can support Mastercard PayPass 3, Visa payWave 2.1.2 and American Express ExpressPay 3.

G8 also maintains backwards compatibility with selected RAM versions, to allow G8 to be upgraded without requiring firmware updates and re-accreditations of the overall payment system.
